Korriban: a planet bathed in dark side energies and haunted by the Ghosts of fallen Sith. Many say that if you walk upon its bleak surface you can still hear them screaming. This is quite possible because most Jedi won’t walk its surface and those who do, do not return the same. Many Ancient and powerful Sith lie in tombs on Korriban: Naga Sadow, Marka Ragnos, Ajunta Pall, and Tulak Hord, as well as Ludo Kressh.
Revan visited Korriban at least twice. His first known visit was with his Apprentice, Darth Malak, on his search for the Star Map and ultimately the Star Forge. Revan chose the fate of the Force Ghost of Ajunta Pall, and defeated the trials of the Tomb of Naga Sadow, and chose the fate of a pair of Sith, Uthar and Yuthura.
The remaining Sith fell into disarray after Revan slew Malak and then disappeared and the Sith Academy turned on each other, vying for whatever little power was left.  In the end it left Korriban in ruins.
Darth Sion fed off the dark energy of Korriban and led a group of Sith Assassins to hunt down the Jedi Exile. It is also worth mentioning that powerful young Jedi, Bastila Shan; and former Jedi and powerful Sith Lord, Kreia (Darth Traya) would not walk its barren surface.
Korriban is the birthplace of the Sith Lords and is often their final resting place
